Inside the van, the kidnappers pull off their masks. They are definitely not Mexican, not unless northern Europe was annexed by Felipe Calderón some time last week. So the question is: Who are these guys and were they with The Collector? Or did a completely different crew try to nab Tara?
Tara's being loaded into the back of an ambulance, and she's pleading to go to St. Thomas. Since the hospital is out of the emergency services' jurisdiction, it looks like that's not going to happen, but Jax pleads, "She's a surgeon at St. Thomas? You can't take her?" The CHiP from the gas station rolls up and orders the EMT to take Tara to St. Thomas, promising to clear it with the dispatchers later. Jax is suitably grateful for a little help from the long arm of the law. The CHiP then quietly notes that Jax happens to be on federal release, and inquires as to whether the recently paroled Jax might be the source of the gunshots in the park. Jax lies. (But this does make me wonder: Where is his piece?) He then blows Tara a kiss and sprints back to the minivan.
The next shot is of Tara being wheeled into the hospital, Jax holding her hand. "The boys..." she says weakly. He assures her they're fine, then tells Tara she's about to go to X-Ray, then get a consult with Dr. Balian, whom one can presume is Charming's resident hand guy. No sooner does he see her off then Gemma appears, hovering around him like a particularly fretful crow. Jax has to go to talk to the cops, but before he goes, he whispers to Gemma that someone attacked Tara and tried to abduct her.
Meanwhile, in an undisclosed location, Juice is killing time by watching cartoons. Potter comes in and makes small talk with, "I'm a Hanna-Barbera fan myself. Quick Draw McGraw was always my favorite." (Interestingly enough, the cartoons are showing a character digging a hole through the floor of his prison cell.) Juice turns off the cartoons and gives Potter a "WELL?" look. Potter sets down a clipboard and says, "My promise. When we take down the Irish at this meet, we'll need to prosecute the club members present. But that's where it stops. I will not use RICO to dismantle the Sons. It's all there, just awaiting my signature." Juice shrugs that he knows nothing about a meeting. "Then go and find out," Potter says. He continues, "Here's the deal, Juice. We give you a cell phone. It acts as a monitoring device. We know where you are, 24/7. You check in every four hours. You don't check in, I get wind you exposed us, we rip [your deal] up, we come crashing in. I settle for the Mexicans and the Sons. SAMCRO and all its charters will fall to RICO. I'll give you until after The Jetsons to decide." Then he takes off, leaving Juice to wonder how he's supposed to get a decent eight hours of sleep if he's got to call in every four hours. As Potter leaves, the cartoon shows a prisoner being beaten by the guards. But hey! It's animals! So it's funny, right?
